GENERAL INFORMATION 

HISTORY AND BACKGROUND 

Newton College of the Sacred Heart is a four-year college 
established in 1946 by the Religious of the Sacred Heart with 
the approbation and encouragement of His Excellency Arch- 
bishop Richard J. Cushing of Boston. 

The Religious of the Sacred Heart founded the Boston Acad- 
emy of the Sacred Heart in 1880, and in 1926 transferred this 
school to Newton as the Newton Country Day School of the 
Sacred Heart. On September 8, 1945 the Schrafft estate adjoining 
the Country Day School was purchased for the purposes of the 
proposed college. On February 2, 1946 the home of Mr. Henry 
Harriman was acquired, and to it in 1949 the Rutherford estate 
was added. A corporation was formed on March 19, 1946, to 
which was granted by the General Court of the Commonwealth 
of Massachusetts, on recommendation of the Board of Collegiate 
Authority, a charter giving "authority to grant and confer all 
degrees such as are usually conferred by colleges in the Common- 
wealth of Massachusetts, except degrees in Medicine and degrees 
(other than honorary doctorates) in Law." 

The affiliation with the Catholic University of America ob- 
tained in 1946 was, in 1951 and 1956, renewed and extended. 

The first Freshman Class was received in September 1946, 
with the plan of admitting one additional class each succeeding 
year until a regular four-year college should be in operation. 
Thirty-four Seniors received their B.A.'s at the first Commence- 
ment Exercises of the College in June 1950. 

The Society of the Sacred Heart was founded in Paris in the 
year 1800 by Saint Madeleine Sophie Barat for the education of 
girls. The first foundation in America was made in 1818 by 
Blessed Philippine Duchesne, one of Saint Madeleine Sophie's 
first companions. 

At present on all the continents, the Society has schools 
and colleges which share the advantages of an international 

20 



General Information 21 

educational organization. The Mother House is in Rome, where 
it is customary for the members of the Society to spend a 
period of time as a normal part of their training. The young 
religious are also sent to houses of study in various American 
and foreign University centers. 

Newton College of the Sacred Heart takes its place among the 
institutions of the Society as a liberal arts college deriving its 
principles from the great tradition of Catholic culture and 
striving to apply them to conditions of the world today. 

LOCATION 

The college is located in greater Boston on Centre Street in 
Newton. A campus of approximately forty acres affords ample 
space for future development and the natural beauty of its 
location has already been enhanced by careful planning and 
cultivation. The advantages of life in the country are combined 
with easy access to the rich cultural resources of the city of 
Boston. There are good recreational facilities on the campus. 

AIMS 

Those responsible for this college share the position of all 
Catholic educators who believe that man has a supernatural 
destiny. To fulfill her duties, a woman who has capacity to profit 
by the necessary training should have knowledge and an interest 
in acquiring further knowledge; the power of independent 
thought, with freedom from prejudices and from subservience to 
commonly accepted standards, if such standards do not bear the 
test of truth and justice; a firm grasp of moral principles and 
a character sufficiently strong to support and defend these prin- 
ciples; powers of judgment and reasoning which have been 
developed by practice in the application of principles to matters 
of importance; and, because the education of a woman would 
otherwise be incomplete, a training in the appreciation of the 
beautiful and a development of those finer qualities of mind and 
heart which strengthen the dignity and the power of women. 
The aim of developing the natural powers and gifts of a woman 



22 General Information 

in such a way as to fit her for her duties in life with reference 
to her supernatural destiny determines the character of the 
curriculum. 

COLLEGE LIFE 

The authorities of the college leave much freedom to the stu- 
dents and entrust them with responsibility in the belief that 
education is a progressive development, and that young women 
of college age have reached a stage of mental and moral growth 
at which it is advantageous for them to bear such responsibility. 
The officers of Student Government, elected by the Student Body, 
enforce regulations in cooperation with a Faculty Adviser. 

The spirit of the college is essentially based upon Catholic 
ideals and practices. The students follow courses in Sacred 
Scripture, Theology and Liturgical Music; and daily Mass and 
attention to the changes in the liturgical cycle are looked upon 
as normal factors in their training. Besides an organization for 
stimulating works of charity and zeal among the students, there 
is a Sodality of the Children of Mary, the purpose of which is 
the spiritual advancement of its members. 

The college administration lays much stress on the programme 
of academic and personal guidance in which the officers of 
administration and the members of the faculty cooperate with a 
view to the best development of the individual student in 
accordance with her gifts and interests. The resident students 
live in the five Houses: Barat, Cushing, Duchesne, Hardey, and 
Stuart, each of which has its own Warden and its group of stu- 
dents representing a cross-section of the college. In this way, all 
classes mingle freely, and the upperclassmen pass on college tra- 
ditions to their younger sisters. 

There are a number of student organizations some of which 
are rather closely related to academic courses, while others are 
purely social and non-academic in character. The varied inter- 
ests of the students find opportunities for expression in such 
groups as the Glee Club, the Dramatic Association, the Inter- 
national Relations Club, etc. There is also intercourse with the 



General Information 23 

students of other colleges in the New England area, not only in 
intercollegiate athletic contests but also in meetings of an aca- 
demic character and in purely social events. A blanket tax is 
paid by each student to cover the expenses of the various or- 
ganizations operating in the college. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

Freshmen and Sophomores are required to participate in two 
hours of physical education a week. Emphasis is placed on the 
development of good body mechanics to improve physical ap- 
pearance and efficiency and to gain recreational skills which may 
be used during and after college. The activities included are 
archery, badminton, basketball, conditioning exercises, field 
hockey, golf, softball, tennis, and volleyball. Besides the regular 
athletic program in which all the students participate, those 
who wish to do so may engage in other forms of activity, such as 
skiing, skating, riding, etc. 

PLACEMENT OFFICE 

The Placement Office offers vocational guidance to students 
and to alumnae of the College. This service includes occupa- 
tional information, talks by authorities in vocational and occu- 
pational fields, interviews with experts, visits to organizations, 
and placement services for undergraduates and alumnae in full 
or part time, paid or volunteer positions.

Applications received after these closing dates will be subject 
to a penalty fee of three dollars in addition to the regular fee. 

Candidates are urged to send in their applications and fees as 
early as possible, preferably at least several weeks before the 
closing date, since early registration allows time to clear up 
possible irregularities which might otherwise delay the issuing of 
reports. Applications received at a Board office later than one 
week prior to the date of the examination cannot be guaranteed 
acceptance. No candidate will be permitted to register with the 
supervisor of an examination center at any time. Only properly 
registered candidates holding tickets of admission to the centers 
at which they present themselves will be admitted to the tests. 
Requests for transfer of examination centers cannot be con- 
sidered unless these reach the appropriate Board office at least 
one week prior to the date of the examination. 

Colleges advising candidates abroad to offer the College Board 
tests should notify them that requests for the establishment of 
overseas centers should reach the appropriate Board office not 
later than two months prior to a scheduled examination date. 
The application and fee of a candidate requesting an overseas 
center must be received in the appropriate Board office before 
arrangements can be made to establish the center. 

The Board will report the results of the tests to the institu- 
tions indicated on the candidates' applications. The colleges 



28 Admission 

will in turn notify the candidates of the action taken upon their 
applications for admission. Candidates will not receive reports 
upon their tests from the Board. 

ADMISSION TO ADVANCED STANDING 

An applicant for advanced standing must present: 

1. An official transcript of all work done at each secondary 
school and college attended. 

2. Evidence of ability to meet the regular requirements for 
admission to the college as well as the requirements for 
admission to advanced standing. 

A student may be tentatively admitted to advanced standing 
at the beginning of either semester but not after the first semes- 
ter of Junior Year. 

Terms of admission are conditioned by the following stipula- 
tions: 

(a) No credit will be given for a course with a grade of less 
than C. 

(b) All credit accepted must represent work which is ap- 
plicable to the current curriculum of the college.

SCHOLARSHIPS 

The Administration Scholarships 

The Administration of Newton College of the Sacred Heart 
gives scholarships, some of them carrying financial aid ranging 
in value from $800 to $6800 for four years. These scholarships 
are awarded on a competitive basis. 

The Duchesne Scholarships 

In 1948, the members of the Duchesne Teachers' Guild ex- 
pressed their loyalty to the Society of the Sacred Heart and their 
support of Newton College by the establishment of a four-year 
partial scholarship for day students. In 1953 it was renewed and 
was won by Nancy Harvey, Rosary Academy, Watertown, 
Massachusetts. 

In 1955, the Duchesne Teachers' Guild has donated another 
scholarship, a full one for a day student for four years. This 
has been awarded to Kathleen Kingston, St. Gregory's High 
School, Dorchester, Massachusetts. 

The Janet Stuart Scholarship 

The Janet Stuart Guild has offered scholars' aid which has 
been won by Ann Blunt of Brockton High School, Brockton, 
Mass. and Joan Scipione of Newton High School. 

The Massachusetts Catholic Woman's Guild 
Scholarship 

The Massachusetts Catholic Woman's Guild offers a scholar- 
ship of $250 a year to be open to a day student, the daughter or 
sister of a member of the Guild. If no such applicant qualifies 
academically it may be assigned to any qualified candidate for 
a scholarship. It is assigned to Janet Neville of St. Gregory's 
High School for 1956-1957.

aid won by Sheila Quinlan of the Academy of the Sacred Heart, 
Greenwich, Connecticut. 

The Michael Sweeney Scholarship

tration of Newton College of the Sacred Heart offers a full resi- 
dence and tuition scholarship each year to the highest ranking 
student from among the scholarship applicants from the Con- 
vents of the Sacred Heart of the Washington Vicariate.

In memory of her husband, Gael Coakley, Dorothy McLough- 
lin Coakley, an Alumna of the Convents of the Sacred Heart, 
Rochester and Manhattanville, has inaugurated an endowment 
fund known as The Gael Coakley Memorial Scholarship Fund. 
The first donations have been given in the names of Gael 
Coakley Jr., Barbara Coakley Lennon, and Mary- Hayes Coakley. 

Grant-in-Aid 

Newton College offers a grant-in-aid program by which a 
student who needs financial aid and does not hold a scholarship 
can receive a reduction in tuition and pay the equivalent of 
this reduction by working for the College at the rate of seventy- 
five cents an hour. No student is allowed to work more than 
ten hours a week while College is in session. Clerical work, 
switchboard service and library service, and other occupations of 
this type are assigned by the Administration. A contract between 
the College and the student specifies the number of hours of 
work to be done per year.

some aspect of a subject chosen from the field of concentration, 
showing ability to consult sources and organize the matter so 
obtained. A publication in a reputable off-campus magazine 
may, with the Dean's approval, be substituted for the Senior 
Essay. 

COMPREHENSIVE EXAMINATION 

This examination is given at the end of the senior year in 
order to evaluate the student's knowledge in her field of con- 
centration, not by considering specific course content, but by 
testing her grasp in the field as a whole. The student is ex- 
pected to widen and deepen her knowledge by independent 
reading in preparation for this examination. 



ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

The standing of a student is determined by her class work 
and by her achievement in the mid-year and final examinations. 
The marking system is as follows: 

A+ =-- 99. 98, 97 % \ Excdlent> outstandi j 
A = 96, 95, 94 c u 

A ~ = 93» 92, 9*> 9° / 



fine work 



B+ = 89, 88, 87 \ 

B = 86, 85, 84 Very good work 

B- = 83, 82, 81, 80 ) 

C+ = 79* 78> 77 ) 

C = 76, 75, 74 Good adequate work 

c ~ = 73* 7 2 > l l > 7° ) 

D+ = 69, 68, 67 \ 

D = 66, 65, 64 Passing work 

D— r= 63, 62, 61, 60 ) 

F = Below 60 Failure 

A grade of C is required in any course that is to fulfil the 
requirements in the major field. 

Students are required to maintain a minimum scholastic aver- 
age of C— . A student who fails to do this is automatically in 
poor scholastic standing and may be dropped from the college. 

Students on the Dean's List are those who during the previous 
semester have maintained a scholastic average of B-|-. Honor 
students are those who during the previous semester have main- 
tained a scholastic average of A— or more. 

ATTENDANCE AT CLASS 

Students are expected to attend all their scheduled college 
classes and not to absent themselves without sufficient reason. 
However, as emergencies inevitably arise during the course of 
a college semester, and to allow a certain freedom where these 
are concerned, Freshmen are allowed six self-excused absences 

36 



Academic Standards 37 

a semester; Sophomores are allowed eight self-excused absences 
a semester; Juniors, ten; Seniors, twelve. Students on the Dean's 
List are entitled to as many self-excused absences as they carry 
hours of class a week, but during a term they may not excuse 
themselves from the same class more times than that class meets 
in a week. Honor students are entitled to an unlimited number 
of self-excused absences from class. Students in poor scholastic 
standing are entitled to no self-excused absences. 

Self-excused absences do not relieve the student from responsi- 
bility for work required while she was absent, nor do they give 
her credit for a quiz that she may have missed. 

EXAMINATIONS 

An examination period occurs at the end of each semester. 
Unexcused absence from an examination is counted as a failure 
in the course. Absence from an examination is excused only for 
illness or a serious emergency. 

HONORS 

The college confers honors at graduation upon students who 
have maintained a high average of scholastic excellence during 
their entire course. The senior essay and the comprehensive 
examinations taken together count as a term's work whose result 
added to that of the eight terms is divided by nine. The scholas- 
tic average required for a degree cum laude is 87-91%; for 
magna cum laude, 92-95%; for summa cum laude, 96% and over. 
These honors are based entirely upon scholarship. For member- 
ship in honor societies, leadership also will be taken into 
consideration. 

BIBLE LECTURES 

Each term there will be a lecture by an authority on the Holy 
Scriptures which the faculty and the entire student body will 
attend. These lectures will be given on the Thursday nearest 
the feast of St. Jerome, September 30, and that nearest the feast 
of St. Gregory, March 12. 



38 Academic Standards 

THE ST. THOMAS LECTURE 

The feast of St. Thomas Aquinas, March 7, is celebrated by 
a solemn High Mass in the Dominican rite, and by a lecture 
given by a distinguished Thomist. 

SUMMER STUDY 

Credit is given for work of at least C grade done at summer 
sessions of approved institutions. Students must have the per- 
mission of the Dean before registering for summer courses. Six 
points of credit, equivalent to six semester hours, is the maxi- 
mum granted in a summer session of six weeks. 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION 

Freshmen and Sophomores are expected to participate in the 
program of physical education, and those who fail to do so are 
penalized by the loss of academic standing. 



COURSES OF INSTRUCTION 

Courses with a double number, such as Art 201-202, extend 
throughout the year. 

Courses with an odd number are given in the first semester; 
those with an even number in the second semester. Courses 
numbered 300 and 400 are upper-division courses. 

Courses marked with an asterisk will be offered in 1956-1957. 
The number in parentheses after the title of the course indicates 
the number of semester hours of credit. 

The College reserves the right to withdraw the offer of any 
course not elected by at least five students.
